Re: A glimmer of hope

Most mfp based machines are using 1gz and up processors these days, yes they usually run a Linux variant because its free or cheap, and use most of it for image processing. It takes a fair amount of grunt to render full colour prints fast, never mind network scanning.our mid range machines run a 1.2 gz chip, 2 gb of ram and have a dual 160 gb hdd array in raid 0, this has been a standard on 50 ppm mfp's for 5 years now.
